Welcome. Sorry if you don't feel the responses you have received so far are constructive. A glance at other, similar threads would lead you to expect this sort of reply, though! Also (as mentioned by someone else) it would be good to hear your current ideas - if only so we don't repeat them all. Two further thoughts to add to the mix (both negative, I'm afraid): 1] At the moment ipod touch is still fairly cool and modern kit. In three years time it will look as old and clunky as those mobile phones from the 1980s. 2] I did a cool lesson with the Yr 9 bottom set where we used screenshots from the ipod game 'Train Conductor'. In this game if you crash the trains you lose 10% of your score. I just used it as a hook and a reason for working out 10% of lots of numbers. We didn't actually play the game in class, but they continued to talk about it months later ("my nan's got that train game on her phone", etc). It provided a pleasant lesson and nice social lubrication for the future and wasn't negative in any way. Can they work out 10% of a number reliably, 12 months on? Nope. Worth doing? Probably not. I am looking forward to hearing what you have already planned. Please keep coming back to give us updates.
